NEW YORK, Feb. 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VGTel, Inc. (OTCBB:VGTL) announced today that the company is in negotiations to expand its mobile capabilities by acquiring mobile commerce IP. "With the explosive growth of mobile data traffic and social mobile applications, it is more critical than ever for every media technology company to have a sophisticated, highly scalable and measurable approach to mobile, " said VGTel's President Larry Harris, who was previously the CEO of Ansible Mobile, a joint venture between Interpublic Group and Velti. 

In addition to developing and expanding its mobile portfolio, VGTel is also looking for opportunities to strengthen its social and video capabilities. The power of social media to actively engage consumers coupled with the reach and personalization of mobile are driving innovation across the media industry and creating opportunities for companies like VGTel to develop new and compelling offers to enhance connections between consumers, content and brands. These trends are also fueling the continued growth of display advertising and marketing services.

Mr. Harris added, "As the market enters a new era that will be driven by audience connections with each other and with brands, we will be focused on personal technology and personal media. To that end, we have also entered into negotiations to strengthen our global capabilities in social media, video and global e-commerce." VGTel anticipates that the deals under discussion will be closed before the end of the second quarter.
